The Ram Power Wagon is making the transition to 2017 model year with a series of cosmetic updates which will be presented at the Chicago Auto Show this week.

If you are not a big fan of chrome, you’ll be happy to hear the 2017MY has lost most of the shiny bits and pieces in exchange for a darker theme. Ram has murdered out the Power Wagon as the grille, side mirror caps, wheel arches, and rear bumper now come in black. The same finish is also noticeable on the wheels, headlights, and for the body decals which can be had in silver as well.

The only chrome piece left is the Ram badge up front on the Rebel-inspired grille. Stepping inside, there’s not much going on as only the headliner is now black and there are some fresh upholstery inserts.

Don’t hold your breath for any mechanical changes since the 2017 Ram Power Wagon continues to have a meaty HEMI 6.4-liter V8 engine pushing out 410 horsepower (306 kilowatts) and 429 pound-feet (581 newton meters) of torque. Output is channeled to the wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox and a manually-shifted transfer case.

The hardware arrangement grants the vehicle with a maximum towing capacity of 10,030 pounds (4,550 kilograms) and there’s also a standard 12,000-lbs electric winch up front.

The 2500-based Power Wagon will be on display in the Windy City alongside another 2500 fitted with the newly added 4x4 Off-road Package.
